If the conduct is serious, or if there is a pattern of behaviour that continues over time without the representative being able to provide a reasonable explanation for his/her behaviour, the Tribunal Chair may take remedial action, including a temporary or permanent suspension from appearing at the Tribunal or a referral to the Law Society of Upper Canada. The representative will be given notice and an opportunity to make submissions to the Tribunal Chair.
